Society - President elect.

I had excavated at Digging for Shakespeare, used resistivity on the foundations of a buried medieval church, field-walked over a buried Roman Villa and completed basic photogrammetry for photos of Coventry, all before I came to Durham! During my time at Durham I have also excavated a Neolithic tomb on the island of Herm in the Channel Islands, and will excavate an Iron Age Hillfort near Cirencester in the Summer of 2012.

I am also a regular volunteer on Digging for Shakespeare (the last house Shakespeare bought, may have written Tempest there, it was burned down in 18th century after a tax dispute), having been there from the start in 2010. Not bad for a president! I am a second year BA student, with an interest in prehistoric landscapes.

Grey College
Society - Post-Grad Rep elect.

Hi, I'm Kacey, currently finishing off my Archaeology BSc before starting a masters in Paleaeopathology in Durham in October 2012. I've loved every moment of being an undergrad archaeologist and being on the ArchSoc exec for the last two years. I hope I can encourage more post-grads to get involved in the society and come to our great events. I'm a bit of a crazy bone lady, but I have a not-so-secret passion for all things Iron Age, and shiny things like Anglo-Saxon metalwork...and mosaics...and you get the idea!

Hi, I'm Katie, your typical Trevsite (yes the hexagonal one) and I'm a second year BA Archaeology student. I've wanted to be an archaeologist since the age of five, and yes, it is a long running passion. Particularly loving Medieval Europe especially the bonkers tribes of the Picts, Saxons and Celts. I have done a lot of work on Roman material and some experimental archaeology building roundhouses.

Mathias Jensen
 
Mathais Jensen
Collingwood College
Society - Projects & Lecture Officer elect

Hi, I am a second year BSc archaeologist. I have been interested in archaeology and knew I wanted to become an archaeologist from a very young age. Im interested in almost any part of archaeology from the detailed science to the extreme theoretical discussions. I am particularly interested in prehistoric europe including Mesolithic Scandinavia, the spread the Neolithic across Europe including the social changes that followed and the rise of complex societies throughout the Bronze Age and Late Iron Age in Europe. I am also very interested in the Early Medieval period in England, this is namely due to spending three summers excavating at the great site at Bambugh Castle.

If anybody has any question on finding volunteer excavations, funding for excavations and small scale archaeological projects or on how to get a paid job in archaeology then I can give you advice or contact details of who to get in touch with. I can also try to answer any other questions regarding archaeology that you may have.
